The Google experiment was ended recently, partly because people couldn't get comfortable with these devices.
Welcome to AJT | Translation and Localisation Specialists
There is probably some time to go before people are comfortable with using real-time translation devices when conversing too. This is a common rule of thumb about how new technologies are viewed. This will no doubt be linked to inflated doomsday predictions for language teachers. Formulating trust and understanding?
Having to rely on an intermediary technology will not be as good as being able to converse in that language. People learn languages to understand culture better, to make travel and business easier, and for the sheer enjoyment and challenge of it. Scientists know that there are many cognitive benefits to learning and speaking a second language such as improved memory.
Will improvements in this technology mean the end of language learning? It seems unlikely. People will still want to talk to each other without a technical middleman. And as for teaching, will it mean the end of language teachers? I don't think so.
